Stairport Sceneries Releases Venice Lido for MSFS

Stairport Sceneries has yesterday released their rendition of Lido di Venezia Airport (LIPV) for Microsoft Flight Simulator. First announced earlier this month, the scenery covers a small airport on the island of Lido just next to Venice in Italy. It is a great departure point for flights around the city also referred to as the city of water.

The scenery offers an accurate rendition of the airport and nearby surroundings, custom night lighting for the best experience during the nighttime, excessive-performance optimization based on specifications by Microsoft, and fully custom modelling and texturing using PBR effects throughout the entire airfield.

If you wish to purchase the scenery, you can do so through the Aerosoft website for a very nice price of approximately €6.70 with VAT excluded.

If you want to look more into the developer’s work, they have recently updated their rendition of Vitoria-Foronda Airport (LEVT) for X-Plane 11, and released their rendition of Perranporth Airfield (EGTP) for MSFS.

I've been a flight sim enthusiast for some time now, and I've always enjoyed flying to various destinations all over the world. My favourite airport is by far Corfu with its scenic and challenging approach. I founded FSNews in May 2019.
